Episode 629 – Ben Reece, Mo Egeston & Kasimu Taylor


A bit ago I was fortunate enough to talk some Jazz with a few of the best in the city at The Dark Room. I was joined by Ben Reece (Saxophone), Mo Egeston (Piano) & Kasimu Taylor (Trumpet). We discussed the Sounds Of St.Louis showcase that was put together at The Dark Room & Grandel Theatre after LouFest was canceled, how they became regulars at The Dark Room, the Kranzberg Arts Foundation and much more.
